• ToneMatrix has managed to keep me amused for extended periods of time, which, if you are familiar with my short attention span, is remarkable. It's also great loop background noise for when I'm writing essays and things. The lights, the noises, RAWR!
• The conversations my family has at the dinner table. I suspect we're one of those families that is ridiculously hilarious . . . to themselves, and themselves only. I don't care, it must aid the digestion, all the laughing we do during supper. "In Soviet Russia, bacon is a vegetable!"
• I am a huge fan of short, pointless, and amusing stories. So, why did no one tell me about MLIA?! I laughed audibly and repeatedly for forty minutes last night, it was lovely.
• Going to the childrens section of my library and coming out with a stack of books that I am both too old and too busy to be reading. Did you know Margaret Peterson Haddix has a new book? Did you know how awesome Margaret Peterson Haddix is, or did you miss that period of your tweenhood?
• Ampere's Law by Broadside Electric, a song I discovered by pure happenstance. I was looking up the lyrics to obscure indie bands, when I noticed the wallpaper of the site was sheet music. Sheet music for this song. It's catchy, it gets stuck in my head, I like it, and maybe it'll help me with physics. Maybe.
• Being told by the father of the little girl I babysit, "Are you a vegetarian? I have you pegged for the vegan type. You love tofu, I can just tell." And when figuring out when they'd need me again, he said, "We'll just email you. Except, you vegans probably only communicate through snail mail." I told him that would hurt the trees.
We are blessed to live life, eh? Every stupid little thing that makes me all glowy with happiness inside, I even dare to think I'm entitled to this amusement, but especially the stupid little things are straight-up blessings. Talk about finding meaning. My life is so exciting!
